About Nature's Fascinating Friendships

The natural world is full of invisible alliances; plants, animals, and microorganisms – some with seemingly insurmountable differences - who come together to work in partnership towards a common goal. Scottish husband and wife duo, Kerry Hyndman and Mike Hills, have worked together to create this beautifully illustrated treasury of some of nature's most fascinating and unlikely friendships from across every continent. Each spread includes a simple explanation of the relationship between two different species, fun facts, quiz questions and interactive activities, making this an informative and engaging read, perfect for curious young minds. Nature's Fascinating Friendships is packed with tales of the wonderful weirdness of our complex and fantastic world.

From the evolutionary marvel of the symbiosis between bats and pitcher plants, to the storybook alliance between water buffaloes and marsh frogs, this book will help you see that, no matter the species, friendship really does make the world go round.
